Today’s times call for a new kind of economics to address the changing needs of our community. The Tampa Bay Time Bank has created an event to do just that: Abundance Swap.

This Abundance Swap will be an activity where anyone can bring a gently used item or one in decent working order. Those items will be on tables for display, and can be taken home for free. Bring something, take home something! One person’s trash in another’s treasure. More info on the Abundance Swap at our blog.

Tampa Bay Time Bank – a community skills exchange

Tampa Bay Time Bank is a community skills exchange, also known as a “time bank.” Time banking is a way to exchange services as a compliment to the cash economy. In Tampa Bay Time Bank we trade skills gained from work, education, life experience, hobbies, and volunteering, while making friends and building community.

Time banking is egalitarian. All activities are valued, and all activities are valued equally. One hour equals one hour. Each hour of work is equal to every other, regardless of the activity. We earn credit by doing something for another member, then we can use the credit by having any other member do something for us.

Please see the Frequently Asked Questions (Member Handbook) to learn more about how Tampa Bay Time Bank works.

Everyone can participate in the time bank

Everyone is welcome and anyone willing to maintain a high level of trust is invited to join the community. Everyone has something to offer and everyone has needs. By participating, each member contributes to creating a resilient and sustainable community. Tampa Bay Time has members throughout the Tampa Bay area.

For more information, for help with your application or using the online system, or if you want to get more involved with the time bank, please contact a coordinator@tampabaytime.org.
